        By the way, I should note that during my test I had
difficulties to associate with Aironet cards, but it looked like it
was a firmware related issue (firmware timing out). The rest work fine
(managed to Lucent, Ad-Hoc to another Prism54, scanning,
WE). Actually, this is the driver I used to develop ifrename.
        Have fun...
